Autologous Arterial Patch Closure of a Mycotic, Inter-renal Aortic Aneurysm

Open ArchivePublished:July 09, 2007DOI:
      A mycotic aortic aneurysm (MAA) located at the level of the renal artery is a rare vascular condition that is difficult to treat. For a patient with MAA, we performed an arterial patch closure of the aortic wall defect using an autologous hypogastric artery. We present the treatment result after a 20 months's follow-up.
